1986 Masters from the Author: John Boyette. At the age of forty-six, Jack Nicklaus was considered by some to be done as a championship golfer. Entering the 1986 Masters, most folks had written off the Golden Bear. But the winner of a record seventeen professional majors wasn't done yet. After a slow start, Nicklaus got in the hunt during the weekend, and he played the final nine holes in a 6-under-par 30. He roared past a who's who of top golfers that day to win his sixth Masters title—a record that still exists. Most experts agree that it was the most thrilling day of tournament golf ever played. Upon the twenty-fifth anniversary of arguably the most exciting Masters in history, THE 1986 MASTERS is nearly a hole-by-hole account written by a veteran sports journalist who was there. Illustrated with more than fifty exclusive photographs of the tournament from the award-winning team at the Augusta Chronicle, it takes you right onto the course with the golfers. Author John Boyette includes commentary from interviews with the key figures connected to the 1986 Masters. From Nicklaus's wife and son to CBS announcers to the players themselves—Greg Norman, Tom Kite, Bernhard Langer, Sandy Lyle, Seve Ballesteros, and many more—an amazing chorus of voices that helps tell this remarkable story. And the voice of Jack Nicklaus shines as well, in an interview provided exclusively for the book. A thoroughly absorbing narrative about one of golf's greatest moments created by one of golf's greatest figures, THE 1986 MASTERS is a must-read for any golf fan.

A History Of American Sports In 100 Objects from the Author: Cait Murphy. Beautifully designed and carefully curated, a fascinating collection of the things that shaped the way we live and play in America What artifact best captures the spirit of American sports? The bat Babe Ruth used to hit his allegedly called shot, or the ball on which Pete Rose wrote, "I'm sorry I bet on baseball"? Could it be Lance Armstrong's red-white-and-blue bike, now tarnished by doping and hubris? Or perhaps its ancestor, the nineteenth-century safety bicycle that opened an avenue of previously unknown freedom to women? The jerseys of rivals Larry Bird and Magic Johnson? Or the handball that Abraham Lincoln threw against a wall as he waited for news of his presidential nomination? From nearly forgotten heroes like Tad Lucas (rodeo) and Tommy Kono (weightlifting) to celebrities like Amelia Earhart, Muhammad Ali, and Michael Phelps, Cait Murphy tells the stories of the people, events, and things that have forged the epic of American sports, in both its splendor and its squalor. Stories of heroism and triumph rub up against tales of discrimination and cheating. These objects tell much more than just stories about great games-they tell the story of the nation. Eye-opening and exuberant, A History of American Sports in 100 Objects shows how the games Americans play are woven into the gloriously infuriating fabric of America itself.

Black Masters A Free Family Of Color In The Old South from the Author: Michael P. Johnson. "A remarkably fine work of creative scholarship." —C. Vann Woodward, New York Review of Books In 1860, when four million African Americans were enslaved, a quarter-million others, including William Ellison, were "free people of color." But Ellison was remarkable. Born a slave, his experience spans the history of the South from George Washington and Thomas Jefferson to Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis. In a day when most Americans, black and white, worked the soil, barely scraping together a living, Ellison was a cotton-gin maker—a master craftsman. When nearly all free blacks were destitute, Ellison was wealthy and well-established. He owned a large plantation and more slaves than all but the richest white planters. While Ellison was exceptional in many respects, the story of his life sheds light on the collective experience of African Americans in the antebellum South to whom he remained bound by race. His family history emphasizes the fine line separating freedom from slavery.
